BUSTED opens this Thursday!

What happens when you mix inspiration, desperation and a deadline?

In spite of divorce, kids, job hunting, internet social media sites and other modern age distractions, Joan struggles for her artistic self-expression. When procrastination threatens her creativity, sanity and script, Joan’s life takes a sudden, comic twist. (65 minutes)
